The Mac Saga Continues …

I’ve been using the Mac for roughly a month now and I love the machine but I just finished ordering a 1GB memory upgrae for the Mini. OSX desperately needs more memory.

I’ve used Fink to install Gnome on OSX, not because I think it’s better or worse than Aqua, but more to see if it can be done and how it works. So far, I haven’t been able to get it to run. I’m probably missing a few pieces somewhere …

I still haven’t been able to get X applications from a remote Linux box to display on the Mini. I honestly haven’t spent much time trying to figure out why but it’s on the To Do list.

One of the really nice things is that I’ve continued to use iSync to keep all my contacts and calendars updated on my Sony Ericsson T610 and my 3G iPod. More or less making my Palm Tungsten T useless. Now to find out a good little project to mak the Tungsten T useful again ….

I also need to get Apache and Postfix configured on the Mini and install MySQL, Postgresql, Metadot, and various Perl modules. I’m not yet sure if I will need to compile and install my own version of Perl rather than using the OSX compiled Perl 5.8.1

I almost wish I had a Powerbook so that I can play with Mac OSX when I’m not at home …
